Book "Ships of Mercy: The True Story of the Rescue of the Greeks - Smyrna, September 1922" by Papoutsy (29 Names Transcribed)



The book "Ships of Mercy:  The True Story of the Rescue of the Greeks - Smyrna, September 1922" by Christos Papoutsy was published in 2008 by Peter E. Randall Publisher, New Hampshire.


There are 29 names mentioned in this book, which I have transcribed below.  If you would like to locate this book, you can usually work with your local librarian to get it through the inter-library loan program.



FROM THE PREFACE
"For more than eighty years, Greek history has claimed that American warships were in the Smyrna harbor, yet provided no help. In fact, many Greeks have said that when the city’s citizens swam out to these ships, they were forced away. Stories were told of American sailors throwing scalding water on them, smashing their hands with tools, and pushing them away with poles. The Smyrna citizens who were rescued from the quay were supposedly saved by Japanese ships. America, many Greeks say, turned a blind eye. Furthermore, many Greeks hold America largely to blame for this nightmare occurring in the first place. They believe that the United States and her World War I Allies double-crossed the Greeks, by first ordering them to march into Turkey, then abandoning them when the Turks pushed the Greek army back to the coast.


Yet the facts about Smyrna have always been sketchy. Did events really unfold as many Greeks and others believe? We decided to find out the truth, as we believe that all sides need to know, without doubt, what occurred in Smyrna during September 1922."
